more of an early Rush vibe

You know when Beavis and Butthead rock out on the sofa to some video? That's me right now.

Greetings from Los Angeles, Jeff. Been lurking the last few weeks. Stopping in to thank you for consistently churning out good music. I've asked before, but if you know of any good shows coming up out here, I'd be much obliged. Thanks again, and peace!
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:11pm Dean:

Saw Budgie at the Whisky in Hollywood but once decades ago. Would love to have seen the Fairies. Rush, meh, but I get the sentiment. Dude was too young.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:12pm Dean:

Do you know The Dogs, the Detroit trio? Saw them, too, at a high school auditorium!

I;m gonna go ahead right now and ask anyone who wants to speak ill of someone who just passed who meant a lot to many people to save it for another message board.

Avatar 🎃 Sun. 1/12/20 10:14pm Jeff Conklin:

@Dean: I dont think so. They have any albums?
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:16pm Dean:

Maybe one sorta compilation. A couple singles, "Slash Your Face" being the most readily available one tmk. Enjoy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DjihfC-UTs
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:16pm Carmichael:

My family says I’m too negative, so RIP Mr. Peart. You did well and left a mark on this soil.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:18pm Carmichael:

YES!! This is you captain speaking.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:18pm steveL:

Hot Meat!!
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:18pm Dean:

Yes, my point above was precisely that while I never got into Rush, I recognized the affection not just the band but Peart himself attracted. And anyway, I don't like hearing about the demise of folks whose careers contributed to the trajectory of my own, however indirectly.

Alriiight! I always dig your show, Jeff, when I listen. Sunday nights I'm not usually tuned in to the FMU.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 1/12/20 10:25pm Yennifer:

Good evening, Jeff and all heads. Damn, I missed Rush. First thing I thought of when I heard Neil passed is that Freak and Geeks clip of Nick drumming to Spirit of the Radio. So spot on.
Avatar Sun. 1/12/20 10:25pm MollyRose:

Damn I missed the Edgar Broughton Tune
Avatar Sun. 1/12/20 10:26pm jt:

I think Captain Beefheart needs a bit of recognition here.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:26pm RCU-Keith:

Evening! Damn, if that Hot Rats Deluxe box set was just 6 hours of Willie The Pimp jams, I’d be pretty satisfied.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Sun. 1/12/20 10:26pm listener 126464:

Opening song from past WFMU DJ John Naroucki (spelling probably wrong) saturday night at 8 i think
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:26pm phat:

thank you for the reminder that, yes, Hot Rats is amazing.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:26pm Carmichael:

Is that Sugarcane Harris there?
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:27pm steveL:

Nice segue out of Willie the Pimp!
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:28pm phat:

yes, Sugarcane Harris
Avatar Sun. 1/12/20 10:29pm jt:

I think have time for "Willie The Pimp" the extended version...

love the album title
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 1/12/20 10:33pm Jeff Conklin:

Dire Wolves have the other best release title ever:

"The Creator Has a Faster Van"
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:33pm Carmichael:

The particular wolves seem fairly dire.

Hey fellow listeners wonder how Frank Zappa would have felt about this station
Avatar Sun. 1/12/20 10:34pm MollyRose:

  Sun. 1/12/20 10:38pm Carmichael:

He would have sneered at most of it, except for “that Jeff Conklin fellow, who obviously has superior musical appreciation.”
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:40pm John from Florham park:

@Carmichael thought he would have dug this station oh well

total star for the space collective
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:45pm Agent Peter:

Other than Dance With Me Stanley and the occasional Coasters song, Frank Would have mostly swerved on FMU
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:46pm Clint in Reno:

I too am digging this.
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 1/12/20 10:46pm mariano:

Bet Zappa would like Downtown Soulville.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:46pm Carmichael:

He probably would have dug Rex.

Hey parubi what’s up
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:50pm Carmichael:

He liked names. He would dig Mr. Fine Wine.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:51pm Dean:

I confess that I'm playing Zukofsky and Schroeder's performance of Feldman's For John Cage in one room while streaming this show in another. It's a nice, uh, melange.
  Sun. 1/12/20 10:55pm steveL:

Dean: Obviously, Mr. Cage would approve!

Thank you Jeff for the incredible Øresund Space Collective track. Time to search them out.

Wow. that was weird. Just was watching a trailer for the Banff film festival tour. Jumped to a random spot in the promotional video when an alarm goes off on a radio alarm clock, and there's "you're listening to WFMU east orange...". But then I realize I'm running two audio. It was so perfectly timed. ThanksJeff!
  Sun. 1/12/20 11:02pm Listener Bop Monroe:

of course he would!!!!!!!!!!!
Avatar 🎃 Sun. 1/12/20 11:04pm mariano:

I know what you mean about musicians' musical tastes, Jeff. I know a few working jazz musicians, absolutely mesmerizing to see/hear playing, encyclopedic knowledge of jazz, and a good bit of what they've recommended to me sounds like smooth jazz or new age.
